    Pre-1900 Indian military photographs..

    We saw numerous pics of 1900-1947, though their are very few pics are there of those British-Bharatiya Jawans back in 1800-1900s who died for the Queen and the Crown and later lost in the pages of History , i believe their are many pics which are yet to be posted over net specially for Indian Members, Here some i got from

    Some early pics of 2nd Afghan War 1878 to 1881 and later ones..

    Hail the Indian Main Battle Tank of the yester-years!

    These soldiers are very tall. At first glance I thought they must be from the Sikh Light Infantry, but I see they are shaven; perhaps they are Dogras?

    The Taliban took over Afghanistan wearing similar turbans. If not a helmet, I might as well wear a turban; at least that thick layer of cloth will protect me and cushion my skull from trauma.
